EIA Information Day – Expansion of Ichthys Eco-Farm

Under the EU’s Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive (2011/92/EU as amended by 2014/52/EU), major building or development projects in the EU must first be assessed for their impact on the environment. This is done before the project can start. The EIA procedure guarantees environmental protection and transparency with regard to the decision-making process for several public and private projects. With its wide scope and broad purpose, the EIA ensures that environmental concerns are considered from the very beginning of new building or development projects, or their changes or extensions. It allows the public to actively engage in the EIA procedure.

Thus, Marine and Environmental Research (MER) Lab Ltd. invites you to a public presentation of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Study for the expansion of the licensed gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata) – European seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax) marine fish farm of the company Ichthys Eco-Farm (IEF) Ltd. from 300 tons to 1500 tons. The licensed fish farm location is within in the administrative boundaries of Moni Council. The event aims to inform the public about the potential impacts from the development of the fish farm unit, and acquire feedback and opinions from the general public and stakeholders.

The event will take place on the 5th of July 2023 at 10:00 a.m. at “The Mill” conference centre (Tochni).

There will be an opportunity for questions, discussion and submission of opinions and suggestions from the audience.

The presence of representatives of the local communities is deemed necessary.
